We acknowledge Australia’s First Nations People as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land, and pay respect to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, upon whose Country SFF are based.
We honour the storytelling and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.

Talk: The Dark Emu Story

Following the State Theatre screening of The Dark Emu Story join us in conversation with the author Bruce Pascoe.
No other Australian book has sparked such passion in both praise and debate over its narrative shaking claims about Aboriginal farming practices.
